Author: Martin Haussmann
ISBN: 3868815171
Release Date: 2014-04-04

Visual Facilitating heißt ein Trendthema, das aus den USA nach Europa herüberschwappt: Mit einfachen Skizzen werden Dialoge, Ideen und komplexe Sachverhalte in Echtzeit visualisiert. Dies ist der erste umfassende Praxisratgeber für Visual Facilitating im deutschen Sprachraum. Anschaulich zeigt der Autor, wie und in welchen Bereichen sich diese visuelle Sprache in der Praxis anwenden lässt. Zahlreiche praktische Zeichenanleitungen machen die Methode für jedermann umsetzbar. Jeder kann Ideen, Prozesse und abstrakte Zusammenhänge in Meetings, Trainings oder Präsentationen von Hand sichtbar machen! Visual Facilitating ist kein lustiges Add-on zur Auflockerung von Konferenzen, sondern macht komplizierte Zusammenhänge begreifbar. Übrigens: Was ist "UZMO"? Das ist der Code, mit dem jeder aus vier Buchstaben ruckzuck eine wirkungsvolle Glühbirne zeichnen kann. Ganz ohne Kunstausbildung. Eben typisch Visual Facilitating.

The acclaimed bestseller about visual problem solving-now bigger and better "There is no more powerful way to prove that we know something well than to draw a simple picture of it. And there is no more powerful way to see hidden solutions than to pick up a pen and draw out the pieces of our problem." So writes Dan Roam in The Back of the Napkin, the international bestseller that proves that a simple drawing on a humble napkin can be more powerful than the slickest PowerPoint presentation. Drawing on twenty years of experience and the latest discoveries in vision science, Roam teaches readers how to clarify any problem or sell any idea using a simple set of tools. He reveals that everyone is born with a talent for visual thinking, even those who swear they can't draw. And he shows how thinking with pictures can help you discover and develop new ideas, solve problems in unexpected ways, and dramatically improve your ability to share your insights. Take Herb Kelleher and Rollin King, who figured out how to beat the traditional hub-and-spoke airlines with a bar napkin and a pen. Three dots to represent Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Three arrows to show direct flights. Problem solved, and the picture made it easy to sell Southwest Airlines to investors and customers. Now with more color, bigger pictures, and additional content, this new edition does an even better job of helping you literally see the world in a new way. Join the teachers, project managers, doctors, engineers, assembly-line workers, pilots, football coaches, marine drill instructors, financial analysts, students, parents, and lawyers who have discovered the power of solving problems with pictures.

Generalplaner all in one

Author: Peter Diggelmann
Publisher: vdf Hochschulverlag AG
ISBN: 9783728138309
Release Date: 2017-08-14

Generalplaner sind in der Baubranche eine vergleichsweise junge Erscheinung. Entsprechend vage wird der Begriff in der Praxis eingesetzt und entsprechend breit ist das Aufgabenprofil. Ein Blick zurück in die Baugeschichte wirft die Frage auf, wer früher diesen Aufgabenbereich innehatte: War es der Architekt, der klassische Baumeister? Der Blick in die Zukunft wiederum macht eines klar: Die künftigen Herausforderungen im Baubereich – insbesondere die zunehmende Komplexität der Aufgaben – werden dem Modell des Generalplaners zu noch mehr Auftrieb verhelfen. Die Definition wird deshalb geschärft, der Aufgabenbereich genauer umschrieben und die rechtlichen sowie die finanziellen Rahmenbedingungen werden geklärt werden. Dieses Buch gibt Denkanstösse für Generalplaner und ihre Auftraggeber.

Der Konkurrenz ein Kundenerlebnis voraus

Genre: Business & Economics

Produkte und Dienstleistungen werden immer austauschbarer. Unternehmen suchen nach Alleinstellungsmerkmalen, die ihnen die Möglichkeit geben, sich von Mitbewerbern zu unterscheiden und sich gegenüber Kunden wie Mitarbeitern zu profilieren. Eine Lösung: Customer Experience Management (CXM bzw. CEM), denn professionelles CXM macht aus Kunden wie Mitarbeitern begeisterte und emotional gebundene Markenbotschafter, die Empfehlungen aussprechen und sich positiv an Ihre Erlebnisse erinnern. Das wirkt sich direkt auf den Umsatz aus! Und das ist nötig, denn Produkte und Dienstleistungen alleine werden immer austauschbarer. Statt entscheidungsrelevante Kontaktpunkte dem Zufall oder einzelnen Mitarbeitern zu überlassen, werden diese konsequent und strukturiert „bespielt“. So wird die „alte“ Währung Kundenzufriedenheit durch neue Begriffe erweitert: NPS (Net Promotor Score), Loyalität und emotionale Bindung sind Messgrößen des CX Ansatzes – sowohl intern als auch extern. In Deutschland fristet das CXM – außer in wenigen Konzernen – noch weitgehend ein Schattendasein. Dies ist im englischsprachigen Raum völlig anders. Dort wird CXM seit Längerem als strategischer Ansatz und Erfolgsmodell in vielen Branchen genutzt. Für das Buch führte die Autorin Interviews mit Experten aus führenden angelsächsischen Unternehmen aus verschiedenen Branchen und Unternehmensgrößen. Das kondensierte Know-how ist in diese Best-Practice Sammlung eingeflossen, die zeigt • welche CXM-Bausteine es gibt• was bei der Implementierung und Anwendung zu beachten ist • welche Fehler zu vermeiden sind • welche Tipps beherzigt werden sollten und • wie Sie/Ihr Unternehmen einen maximalen Nutzen aus CXM ziehen.Das Buch vermittelt somit – mit nur so viel Theorie wie nötig - den Fahrplan, wie Unternehmen CXM erfolgreich als strategische Erfolgssäule implementieren und nutzen können. Es macht auch deutlich, dass CXM ein mittel- bis langfristiger Ansatz ist, der einen Kulturwandel im Unternehmen bedeutet!
